ARGH! Me Workstation Is Sunk, Matey.

OK. This sucks. After the two day power outage it appears that my workstation is fried. Or at least the motherboard is. So, I am off to NewEgg to get some parts to build a new one :) This time I think I will splurg a little and build a kick ass system. Here is what it appears that I can afford.

I will use the same drives and case from my existing workstation. Feel free to let me know what you think. This will again delay things. There is also some more bad news about Brian which I will share in the next episode. Edit: I ordered the above, but the motherboard was bad. Newegg was great though. They are returning the bad one and gave me free 2 day shipping on a new one that I ordered to replace it. Newegg is great! Edit: I wish I would have seen this before I ordered. This is almost exactly like the MB I ordered plus it runs LinuxBIOS!!
